NOW EXTENDED TO JANUARY 18TH, 2016!
Hot Wheels Fans, start your engines and race over to Discovery Cube OC in Santa Ana to learn all about the engineering and behind-the-scenes of fast cars, and why Hot Wheels is still popular for generations to come in their Hot Wheels: Race to Win exhibit!
For example, Hot Wheels don’t have engines so how can you move a car without an engine? It’s all in the design! Boosters and launchers add speed to the cars. They also compare the different sound of race cars. (The faster the engine spins, the higher the pitch.)
This interactive exhibit is broken up into colored zones:
- Explore engines and power in the Yellow Zone,
- Refine your motorsport design in the Blue Zone,
- Examine the safety technology of racing in the Red Zone, and
- Meet your need for speed in the Green Zone.
My boys loved it! Those are just a few things found in the Hot Wheels exhibit for hours of fun. You can also check out floor models of real race cars. My boys have been asking to go back so I’ll have to find another opportunity to take them. For Media Preview night, Hot Wheels’ Head Designer, Alton, made a special appearance and taught a Mattel Design Class. What a special treat!
